At the risk of getting my ass kicked. This is wrong. The actors SHOULD know where their characters are in the arc in order to best portray their motivations. Placating the fandom meaninglessly here for the showrunner’s incorrect ethos, once again. This is NOT how it should be.
Taking myself out of my self imposed exile. You won’t get your ass kicked. Actors should know what’s going on with their characters so that they — as actors — can give their BEST work. I think it’s sad that KW and the rest of them act like it’s cute that they don’t know what’s going on and that they sometimes have to say the same line over and over (ex: “dad?”) in different tones and affects because SR has yet to decide the outcome. See, that shit right there is problematic.
I remember back when Sleepy Hollow first came on and the creators were giving interviews. Orci or one of them CLEARLY and EXPLICITLY stated that they tell their actors what’s on the horizon so that they are fully informed and so that they can use said information to inform their acting choices. Unlike SR, the Sleepy Hollow creators do not want to handicap their cast by having them be blind.
But also, lets keep it 100% — the Scandal cast doesn’t know shit because SR doesn’t know shit and she makes it up at the last minute. That’s the reason why — when you put the eps together — shit falls apart, has more holes than Swiss cheese, with those holes being the size of the craters on the moon.
One last thing — when I was tweeting, I pretty much called out everything that was going to happen. Only if you are an idiot could you not figure out most of the shit on that show. So I dunno what excitement she’s talking about.
Back to my hole I go.
Your commentary is everything
Let the church say amen.
I’m just letting you guys know that if I could write slash, I would.
"I see your two Oreos, grandpa Ray, and you raise you three Oreos and two carrot sticks." Emma pushed her cookies and carrots to the center of the table and then smiled up at Olivia. "Look, mom! Grandma and grandpa taught me how to play poker."
Olivia shot daggers at Lynn and Ray as she took the cards from Emma’s hand but neither seemed to be phased by it. She was use to them ignoring Emma’s bedtime or sneaking her extra treats before bed when they came to visit. They were grandparents. It was what they were designed to do, but never had they allowed Emma to join in on one of their poker games.
"Hey!" Emma shouted as she tried to reach for her cards. "I was just about to take grandpa to the cleaners."
Lynn hid her laughter behind her hand while Ray tried to disguise his as a cough.
She bit down on both lip to stop her own laughter. “Do you even know what that means?”
"It means that I get five cookies." Emma reached for her cards again.
Ray nudged her hip with his elbow. “Come on, Libby. It’s just a harmless game of poker.”
"Yeah." Lynn nodded at her partner in crime. "Besides, It’s not like we taught her to play with quarters like I did with Fitz."
Emma’s eyes grew wide. “You mean we can play with money too?”
I need this story in my life.
It’s because you haven’t updated This is Vermont. People are rebelling.
Fitz is shaken awake, gently, but he is still startled; only relaxed by the soft green eyes staring back at him.
"Everyone’s asleep," the green eyed man whispers. He pushes Fitz unruly curls back from his forehead, "Is it alright that I came?" Fitz nods, still sleepy. He pulls the covers back on his cot and rolls over so his back is resting against the wall.
"I didn’t think you would show," Fitz whispers, his sleepy smile spreading through his features.
Ummm so I never thought I would actually find Jake acceptable in a fic but….
